Laypeople

soren-kierkegaardThey can motivate the church staff:

The slaughtered the Passover lamb on the fourteenth day of the second month. The priests and the Levites of the LORD. – NIV 2 Chronicles 30:15

The people were so zealous to celebrate the Passover and bring offerings to the temple that the priests and Levites were ashamed they did not share the same enthusiasm. The zeal of common people’s faith motivated the ministers to take action.  The devoted faith of laypersons today should motivate professional church staff to rekindle their enthusiasm for God’s work.  Laypersons should never but shut out of church government or decision making.  The church needs their good examples of faith.
